As an example of what can be achieved without "image processing".

This simple script compares two images and produces a single similarity figure:

#! perl -slw use strict; use GD; GD::Image->trueColor( 1 ); my $im1 = GD::Image->new( $ARGV[ 0 ] ); my $im2 = GD::Image->new( $ARGV[ 1 ] ); my $raw1 = $im1->gd; my $raw2 = $im2->gd; my $xored = $raw1 ^ $raw2; my( $all, $diff ) = (0)x2; $all += 255, $diff += ord substr $xored, $_, 1 for 0 .. length( $xored + ) - 1; print $all, ' ', $diff; printf "The simlarity is %.3f%%\n", ( $all - $diff ) / $all * 100;

And here are the results of applying that to my previous 'problem' examples.

  • The 'spot-the-differences' ballons A & B:
    C:\test\xx>..\907337 ballons1.jpg ballons2.jpg 672410265 62443267 The simlarity is 90.714%
  • The 'identical except slight color fade' ballons; A & A':
    C:\test\xx>..\907337 ballons1.jpg ballons1a.jpg 672410265 92011553 The simlarity is 86.316%
  • The two BrowserUk late period variations of "Red rectangle on white background"; X & Y:
    C:\test\xx>..\907337 1.png 2.png 244802805 241803 The simlarity is 99.901%
  • And perhaps a more poignant example. MicroArray1 & MicroArray2:
    C:\test\xx>..\907337 microarray1.jpg microarray2.jpg 340764405 41409302 The simlarity is 87.848%

    In this example, the second microarray is just a mirror image of the first for test purposes as I couldn't find two similarly size examples. The reflection means that the registration is probably not as good as you'd expect from a true comparison, but it serves its purpose to highlight the possibilities and downsides of the technique.

The technique could be much improved with good examples and a clearer statement of requirements.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    [erix]: yeah, interesting one. I think it can speed up some queries nicely (I haven't played with it much yet)
    [erix]: alas, sometimes it slow things down (it isn't enabled by default)
    [marto]: did that pg-GPU engine ever go mainstream?
    [erix]: pgstrom? no, I don't think so
    [erix]: although I have to admit its project page looks reasonable uptodate
